The Irish broad level of unemployment was at 416,474 in October — about 19% of the workforce. The narrow level of unemployment in October was at 203,000 in October at a rate of 9.3% — this rate is the same as the average for the EU28: The EU-28 unemployment rate was 9.3% in September 2015, down from 9.4% in August 2015, and from 10.1 % in September 2014.
 
Live Register data published today by the CSO show that the number receiving unemployment benefit in October was 332,200. Coupled with the 74,274 in publicly funded activation schemes (in September) gives us the total of 416,474.

So have the government been lying to us?

They are awful figures for a government claiming they got the jobless back to work.

Expect spin and more spin with pravada ignoring this news.

How have the government been lying to us. You need to compare like for like. Maybe they have been but you need to offer up more than this extremely poor OP.
